Hailed by Eric Jerome Dickey as "a powerful, prolific, and remarkable writer," Sandra Kitt tells the passionate story of a single career woman who finds the love of her life after she becomes the guardian of an orphaned child. A research manager at a TV station, Deanna Lindsay is content with her successful career and her relationship with her friend and lover, Richard. Then she gets the call that changes her life. Stacy Lowell is dead, the victim of an apparent hit and run. Deanna hasn’t seen her old friend in almost seven years - so she’s stunned to discover that the troubled woman appointed her as the guardian of her six-year-old biracial daughter. At first, New York firefighter Patterson Temple doesn’t think Deanna is the right person to provide a home for young Jade - but then Deanna starts to change his mind. Almost against his will, Patterson finds himself drawn to the elegant career woman. But someone from Stacy’s past also wants Jade - someone very dangerous.
